Free Christmas Icons And Gimp Brushes


To help all our faithful followers get into the festive spirit we have a collection of icons for you to use in your own designs, and to go along with them a set of Xmas themed brushes for Gimp.


The icons come in a collection of coloured images...



 ...and in black and white to add lots of variety. The Gimp brushes use the same images but will allow much greater freedom in colour, size and design options. The icons and brushes can be dowloaded here.

How To Install The Gimp Brushes 

Installing the Gimp brushes is a simple process but for those who are unsure what to do, follow these steps.

1/ Navigate to the location where you downloaded the brushes and icons folder and unzip it.


2/ Right click on the folder containing the brushes and select Copy.

3/ Navigate to Local Disk (C) > Program Files > Gimp2 > share > gimp > 2.0 > brushes then in the brushes folder paste the brushes. There’s no need to remove the brushes from their folder unless you want to. Keeping them in the folder can make them easier to manage if you decide to remove them at a later date.


4/ After hitting paste you may see the above window. Click Continue and the brushes will be added to the Gimp brushes folder.


5/ The image above shows the brushes after being pasted to the Gimp brushes folder.


6/ The next time you open Gimp you’ll see the brushes have been added to the brushes panel. Simply select the brush in the Tools Panel, select a brush from the Brushes Panel  (as shown above) and they’re ready to use.


Enjoy using your new brushes and icons, and we wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
